A common-looking stone transports Rich, Mickie and Bill into a world wrapped in historical reality and fantasy.
This gripping story brings to life the Christina Nilsson, a working Lake Michigan schooner. Our story winds through historically real sites as well as a fantasy civilization, Urgin. Urgin is a 10,000-year-old sunken continent. With the assistance of Aralic and Benowin, 8,000-year-old brother and sister from Urgin, will our three accidental heroes ultimately accomplish their purpose?
In the course of this tale you will be transported to 1954 Midwest as well as 1884. With the realities of anchors, bikes and masts, our story moves to floating rock boats, bubbles capable of turning solid rock into oatmeal, and a world thirteen miles beneath the present Earth’s surface. Come and visit worlds technologically advanced; one seemingly locked in a “simpler time,” and finally, one still operating with wind power.
Our 1954 reluctant heroes are chosen to save two children from a doomed vessel—to save the world. Can they?
